Squarepusher

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Squarepusher interview in this month's SoS.

Very interesting guy, very insightful, self-critical and very bullsh1t free (cf. last month with some eejit blabbering on about how much better Nuendo sounds than Cubase 5 or sthg)

Also it really made me want to go and check out some more of his music... my previous squarepusher experience is limited to a Warp package tour at the Brighton Dome where they did George Antheil's Ballet Méchanique and some orchestred AFX, and then Squarepusher came on doing a bass odyssey with added electroslabs that had be genuinely terrified the ceiling was going to collapse at one point

Thanks -- I know Paul Tingen put a lot of work into that so he'll be very pleased to know it was appreciated.

yeah it was well-written and put together...

I loved the way Squarepusher kept theorising about his own working methods then deliberately trying to subvert himself by doing the oppositve of what he thought his own values were

Kinda reminded me of Eno relating about when he'd work with John Cale, pretty much cos Cale would totally pull the rug from under all Eno's strategies.... but Eno needed a 2nd person to do that - Squarepusher seems to do it to *himself*! lol

(Also, as a Blakes 7 fan, it fondly reminded me of...
CALLY: How do you work that out?
AVON: Intuition
CALLY: I thought you didn't believe in intuition?
AVON: I don't... so I am probably wrong)

AVON FTW!

Hmmm...some of us aren't favoured enough to have seen the new issue yet...

Looking forward to reading the article. Think Tom Jenkinson is a great bloke, but have to say since I've not really enjoyed an album of his since 'Hello Everything.' He's taken the bass guitar a bit TOO far for me personally.
